Joss Whedon to Direct The Avengers Movie?

Holy. Fucking. Fuck.

Deadline is reporting that Joss Whedon is in final talks to direct the Avengers movie.   Which means not even FOX can fuck this up for geeks. And yes, for the small few who know me, you’re probably shaking your heads and walking to the kitchen to grab me a towel for me to wipe my pants off.  SRSLY.

I need to catch my breath.

Jesus.  Whedon directing The Avengers. Have you read his stab at Astonishing X-Men? It’s pretty top notch.  Can you imagine what he could do with a monster superhero movie featuring, ahem, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), as well as SHIELD leader Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).
